THE NAME OF THE WIND by Patrick Rothfuss

Book 1 : KINGKILLER CHRONICLE

Prompted by a biographer called Chronicler who realizes his true identity, Kvothe starts to tell his life story. From his upbringing as an actor in his family’s traveling troupe of magicians, jugglers and jesters, the Edema Ruh, to feral child on the streets of the vast port city of Tarbean, then his education at “the University,” Kvothe is driven by twin imperatives—his desire to learn the higher magic of naming and his need to discover as much as possible about the Chandrian, the demons of legend who murdered his family.

Teenagers?No
Adults?Yes

Comments: This is a fan-double-tastic book. It is slow but it is jam-packed with interesting happenings. There is a lot of tension and the main character is always in trouble but he is very creative at making his way out. Plus he's not stupid just to "look at things differently" or to be "original" which is a necessity in a book like this. You can't wade through a book this big and be annoyed every time the protagonist reacts like a idiot just so the story is different from other fiction on the shelf.
